Hymn/Song Information

Friend of the home As when in Galilee




Friend of the home:
as when in Galilee
The mothers brought
their little ones to Thee,
So we, dear Lord,
would now the children bring,
And seek for them
the shelter of Thy wing.


Thine are they,
by Thy loveís eternal claim,
Thine we baptize them
in the threefold Name;
Yet not the sign we trust,
Lord, but the grace
That in Thy fold prepared
the lambs a place.


Lord, may Thy Church,
as with a motherís care,
For Thee the lambs
within her bosom bear;
And grant, as morning
grows to noon, that they
Still in her love
and holy service stay.


Draw through the child
the parents nearer Thee,
Endue their home
with growing sanctity;
And gather all,
by earthly homes made one,
In Heaven, O Christ,
when earthly days are done.
